How do I auto synchronize USB Flash drive with My Documents folder when plugged in?

Last Modified: 2013-11-14
I have a USB Flash drive that I want synchronized with a folder in My Documents. So under My Documents, I have a folder call "Portable Drive", how do I make it so that anytime that flash drive is plugged in, it synchrnizes with that folder (so changes can be made from either area). By the way, I don't have a U3 enabled flash drive and I've read that it's in the hardware so I got no chnace of converting it. So is there a way to place a script on the flash drive to sync with that folder if it's available?
